With respect to the ANT prefix designations for prewar Tupolev designs, I was reading the book Unflown Wings when I found that ANT-8 was also used for the MRT-1 project for a maritime reconnaissance/torpedo flying boat, and that ANT-18 was re-used for a single-engined fighter plane that was assigned the designation I-12. Thus, two different Tupolev fighter projects of the early 30s used the designation I-12, and two different flying boats used the designation ANT-8. This reminds me of the situation where ANT-29 was used for both the DIP fighter and a civilian derivative of the ANT-27. Didn't the Tupolev design bureau have a fixed policy of using ANT prefix designations for more than one aircraft?

Hi Vahe,


no,the Tupolev use many policies from its beginning,and when the company see that design
has not attractive order,it can use it again in anther design,that was clear from many Russian
companies,but for your discovering,that's new,but if you can scan those pages and send them,
that help us more.

Does "Zakaz" have a particular meaning in the Russian language? Thanks, Harry

"Zakaz" means "order" or "contract".

Returning to ANT-18. This designation was used for the I-12 fighter project with one M-29 engine, conventional fuselage and APK cannons under the wing.

Didn't know that ANT-18 was re-used for a Tupolev fighter plane project until I got a copy of Unflown Wings, considering that ANT-18 was first used for a Tupolev ground-attack aircraft.
